ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Rev. George Marriott

(1735 ca.-1793)


George Marriott was chaplain to the English community at Sweden and afterwards Lecturer of St. Luke, Old-Street. He published two poems and a number of sermons. The obituary in the Gentleman's Magazine suggests that Marriott obtained the rectory at Twinstead, Essex through Sir James Marriott, who was presumably a relation.
